This netted me a 65 from PCGS:






They might all make 64, but the two gouges on the P coin are in pretty prominent spots. When they drag your eye to the gouge first, it's going to have an effect. I think the San Francisco coin is the best of them.

, What's with the uneven fields of it, you can only see that in high grade coins like that one.

Yeah, that kind of freaked me out under the lens. That coin is how I learned how critical cuts in the larger reverse letters are on Lincolns. I won't go over 65 for a Lincoln which has a reverse letter nicked, now.

I would not grade any above a 64 due to the presence of contact marks primarily on the obverse. I am a very conservative grader and feel that no coin which manifests contact marks on Lincoln's face and head should attain the grade of 65. Multiple marks or a sole prominent and distracting mark on Lincoln's coat will also keep me from awarding a 65. However, I am OK with a 64 for each of the coins you've shown provided the 49-P did not have its color altered by cleaning or the application of some chemical substance. The 49-P looks to be a different color from the other two coins leading me to wonder why. I recognize that color variation can be present for reasons other than cleaning.

To SsuperDdave:
In my opinion your 1910 Cent should grade above a 65 as a RB. One of the cleanest I have seen!

They all look pretty nice with the 49-D appearing the best and a likely 65 if very lustrous and 64 easily. The others look 63 shot 64.

65RB. I had it at 66, but there was plenty of headroom for 65 to be profitable for me.

Now that you mention it, the Philly coin's color is off, but depending on the camera this could have just been a function of the camera's shifting Auto White Balance.
